Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.263

huge and beautiful indeed 

HELLO! We are back! 

In today’s 263rd edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will continue to talk about some of the other Retail release announcements from the HUGE list that we saw last week. Interestingly enough, we would be mainly be talking Gunpla releases from the upcoming Hathaway movie. 

So, without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?

HG 1/144 RX-105 Ξ Gundam (HGUC)

Release Date: April 2021
Estimated price: JPY 6,600 (MYR RM 256.88* / USD $ 63.31* / EUR € 52.12*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

Aah, yes, the HGUC Ξ Gundam.

Before we saw this HGUC press release, we were looking forward to seeing any new details of its release, and we thought that we might be more excited for its release after seeing more of it. 

However, after spending more time with the HGUC Ξ Gundam’s promotional materials, we admit that we felt a bit indifferent towards it. 

But honestly, it wasn’t because we think that the HGUC Ξ Gundam isn’t appealing enough, no. As a matter of fact, we all feel that this kit looked pretty badass, and not, to mention, insanely detailed. What’s more, we do admit that it gave a strong HGUC Moon vibe here. 

What that means is that we think this would be a good one. 

So why are we finding ourselves feeling indifferent? 

Well, that is because unlike the other previous Gunpla EXPO Tokyo 2020 reveals that we’ve seen, it doesn’t seem like there is anything significant and particularly new that we learn here. It looked exactly like the way we saw it last time. 

So yeah, we were hoping to learn more new things from this release as we did with both the MG GINN and the HGCE Dagger L. But even with that said, we are ok with what we do learn of this HGUC release. 

Because we still think this is still a fascinating HGUC release that we’re looking forward to getting.

That’s up until we saw the press release of the next one. 

HG 1/144 Ξ Gundam VS Penelope Funnel Missile Effect set (HGUC)

Release Date: April 2021
Estimated price: JPY 17,380 (MYR RM 676.46* / USD $ 166.72* / EUR € 137.25*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

Because unlike the HGUC Ξ Gundam’s press release, reading through the HGUC Ξ Gundam VS Penelope Funnel Missile effect set press release gives us a very different reaction instead.

Because from what we learned, it seems like you don’t just get some badass effect parts for both the HGUC Ξ Gundam and the HGUC Penelope. Apparently, this Funnel Effect set comes with both the HGUC Ξ Gundam and the HGUC Penelope together. Yes, you heard us right, it comes with the two kits as well. 

Which honestly managed to catch us all here by surprise. But then again, it may explain why the set is so bloody expensive.

You might be wondering why we so surprised by this? Well, that is because, during its reveal, we thought that the effect parts is all you’ll be getting here. We really didn’t expect to see this effect parts set to have the actual bloody kits themselves included in the set.

But alas, it is good news for those that haven’t gotten any of the kits like us because this would definitely be the best option to go for if you are considering getting both of them at once. 

But that’s not the only reason to be getting this HGUC set, because there is as well the fact that they included the effect parts and a stand to make your life posing these two kits together a tad bit better. 

That is why we are most likely would be getting this version instead of just a singular kit.

All that is left to do is to save up so we could actually get them. 

Anyways, that concludes our 263rd edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. There are still some Retail Gunpla kits to talk about, which we will cover in the next Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. Which we are quite excited to move on to next. 

Oh, and Kimi is almost managed to get the RG Force Impulse done, so we might see something coming up soon-ish. Haha.

Anyways, we will be back again the next coming Thursday (hopefully) with more Gunpla/ Gundam merch related posts for this blog, so do look forward to that!
